The ASM Library is a directory and sub-directory structure that provides a separate place for the Assembler Programmers and support Personnel to store configuration files, programs and job scripts that support an Assembler infra-structure.
We have made a significant effort to ensure the documents and software technologies are correct and accurate. We reserve the right to make changes without notice at any time. The function delivered in this version is based upon the enhancement requests from a specific group of users. The intent is to provide changes as the need arises and in a timeframe that is dependent upon the availability of resources.

The following diagram shows the model sub-directory structure for the ASM Library (or Directory). The ASM directory is typically a sub-directory under a directory structure for a Development environment. Update or change capability to the ASM directory structure and its content may be limited to system and support individuals. Read or view access typically has a larger audience.
|Note:1 This directory is usually placed first in the search order so the patched member will be selected instead of the original member in another directory.|

This section provides additional detail about the ASM Library and some of the system and support functions available.
The ASMCPY1 sub-directory contains the mainframe assembler copy files.
The ASMMAC1 sub-directory contains the mainframe assembler macro files.
The ASMPATCH sub-directory contains the modified or patched source members. This sub-directory is usually placed first in the search order so the patched member will be selected instead of the original member in another directory.
The LIST sub-directory contains the listing files that may be created by the Assembler Compile and Link processes.
The OBJS sub-directory contains the object members that are created as a result of Assembler compilation. The object members are used as input to the link process.
The WORK sub-directory is a multi-purpose directory used by the Assembler functions.

SimoTime Technologies was founded in 1987 and is a privately owned company. We specialize in the creation and deployment of business applications using new or existing technologies and services. We have a team of individuals that understand the broad range of technologies being used in today's environments. Our customers include small businesses using Internet technologies to corporations using very large mainframe systems.
Quite often, to reach larger markets or provide a higher level of service to existing customers it requires the newer Internet technologies to work in a complementary manner with existing corporate mainframe systems. We specialize in preparing applications and the associated data that are currently residing on a single platform to be distributed across a variety of platforms.
Preparing the application programs will require the transfer of source members that will be compiled and deployed on the target platform. The data will need to be transferred between the systems and may need to be converted and validated at various stages within the process. SimoTime has the technology, services and experience to assist in the application and data management tasks involved with doing business in a multi-system environment.
Whether you want to use the Internet to expand into new market segments or as a delivery vehicle for existing business functions simply give us a call or check the web site at http://www.simotime.com
